Nor is this result surprising when it is remembered that its popularity Is based upon its marl's, solely as established by actual tests. That this preparation will actually Restore gray Ha'r to its Natural Color, produce a luxuriant growth upon the head-, of the bald, prevent the hair from foiling otT. aad when used as a tonic ar ticle, produce a continual fiow of the natural fluid and tnus render the hair soft, glossy and wavy, destroy diseases of the scalp, ana expel dandruff! the certificates of distinguished gentlemen ana ladies in every part of the country who have tried it, and therefore speak what they know, most ful ly attest. That by a proper use of this Restorative the hair can be made to attain and retain its natu ral color to almost any a^e aiotted to humanity, by removing the cause of disease from the scalp? no matter how long standing?the concurrent tes timonials of the press and the certificates of nu merous resner;able Individuals of both sexes, to the use of this curative, as well as of the recom mendations of editors and certificates before ailu ded to, can be had of all agents.

A little more thanfifty years ago, a man by the name of Henry Thompson called at a house of Mr. J. Smith, a resident in a retired partof England, and requested a night's lodging. TPbis request was granted, and the strange?, having taken.soine refreshments, retired early to bed, requesting that he might be awakened at early hour the following morning ? J1?? the ?i?Pw*nted to call him en inFM. ilY0011?- m ,h?1 W**?* he was found in his bed perfectly dead On examining his body no marks of violence appeared, but his e mtcnance looked ex- I tremely natural. The story of hi-' death soon spread among the neighbors, and inquiries were made ad to who Tie was and by what means he came to bis death. Nothing certain, however, was known. He ha I arrived on horseback, ar.d .is seen pass ing through a neighboring village about an hour before he reached the house where he had come to his end. And then, as to the m.-nner of his death, so little could be discov er, d that the jury which wa? sui. noned to in ve tigate the cause, returned a verdict that he 1 died "by a visitation from God." When this w. s aone, the stranger was buried. Hay < and weeks passed on, bu.. littlo furthei was known. The pul>iic mind, however, wa.? not at rest Suspicions existed that fou! m^ans had hastened tne stranger's death. Wnispers 10 hat effect was expressed, and in the hearts ?f many, ^mith was considered as the guilty man. ? J The former character of Smith had not been ?' ,? He had lived a loose and irregular life, involved himself in debt by his extravagance, and at length being suspected of having ob tained money wrongfully, he suddenly fled fron the town. J More than ten years, however, had now . P;?d 8?"C? his return, during which he had ? iv.'u iit his present rcsidencc apparently in good circumstances, and with an im^ved character. His former life, however, was now remembered, and suspicion, after all, was fas tened upon him. At the expiration of two months, a gentle man one day stopped in the place for the pur po: j of making inquiries respecting the stran ger who had been found in his bed. He sun posed himself to be the brother of the man. I,,! horse and clothes of the unfortunate man >tiil lcruained, and were immediately known as having belonged to his brother. The bo .y, also, i was taken up. and though con siderably changed, bore a strong resemblance to htm. Jlfc now felt authorized to ascertain, if pos sible, I he manner of his death. He proceVd therefore, to investigate the circumstances as well as he was able. At length he made known to the magistrate of the district the in | formation he^ ha<i collected, and upon the strength of this, Smith was taken to the jail to be tried for the wilful murder of Henry fr. >mpson. The celebrated Lord Mansfield was then on the bench. He charged the grand jury to be cautious as to finding a bill against the pris oner The evidence of his guilt, if guiltv, might be small. At a future time it might be greater. More information might be obtained Saould the jury now find a bill against him' and should he be acquitted, he could not be ni< lested again, whatever testimony should rise up against him The grand jury, how ever, did find a bill, but by a majority of only At length the time of trial arrived. Smith wiis brought into court, and placed at the bar. A great crowd thronged the room. eager and anxious to see the prisoner, and to hear the lI2ul xrilu himse,f. aPPearefl firm and collect eu. Nothing in his manner or appearance in- I dicated guilt, and, when the question was nut I to him by the clerk, ? Are you guilty or not guilty T he answered with an unfaltering t":>gue, and with a countenance perfectly un- I changed, " Not guilty." j The oounael for the prosecution now opened the case But it was apparent that he had little expectation of being able to prove the I primer guilty. He stated to the jury that the case was involved in great mystery The I prisoner was a man of respeciaoiiity and of property. The deceased was supposed to have about him gold and jewels t., a large amouut ? but the prisoner was not so mu.h io want of fundi as to be under a strong temptation to commit murder. And be=ides, if the prisoner had obtained the property he had effectually concealed it. Not a trace ot it could be found- I >> hy, then, was the prisoner suspected ? He I would state the grounds of -uspiciou. The de ceased, Henry Thompson was a jeweler. re?ij- I ing in Loudon, and a man of wealth. He had I left London for the purp ise ot meeting a trader I at Hull, of whom he expeetcd to make a larire purchase. That trader he did meet; and after the departure of the latter. Air. Thompson was known to have luuls it weld and I gold to a large amount. I With these in his pe&sasaion, he loft Hull on his return to London. It was not known that he stopped until he reaped Smith's, and the next.morning was discovored d^ad in his bed He died, then, in Smith's h use, aud if it could I be..->hown that he came to his deith in an ua- I natural way, it would increase the suspicion that the prisoner was in some way connected with the murder. I Now, thnn, coLtinued the counsel, it will be proved beyond the possibility of douet, that the decea d dud by poison. What was th?. poison . it was a recent discovery of some I (Jetinan chemists said to be produced from dihtilling the seed of the wild cherry tree It was a poison more powerful than any oLer I known, and deprived of life so immediately as tc> leave no marks of suffering, and no con tortion. i the features. iiut, then, tne question when, by whom was it administered One circumstance, a small I one, indeed, and yet upon it might hang a hcrrid tale, was, that the stopper of a snfall bottle of a very singular description had been found in the prisoner's hou?e. Tho stopper had been examined, and said by medical men to have belonged to a German vial, contain- I ing the kind of poison which he described. . then, was that -poisoa administered by I Mnith, or at his instigation ? Who were th^ priso ner^s family ? It consisted only of him self, a housekeeper, and one man-servant The man-servant slept in an out-house adjoin ing the stable, and did so on tho night of Thompson s death. The prisoner slept in one end ot the house, the housekeeper at the other and the deceased had been put in a room ad joining the housekeeper's. It would be proved, that about three hours after midnight, on the night of Thompson's death, a light had been seen moving about the house, and that a figure holding the light was seen to go from the room in whinh the prisoner slept to tho housekeeper's room; the lijrht now disappeared for a minute, when two per sons were seen, but whether thev went into lucmpson s room the witneas could not swear but shortly after they were observed to pass quite through the entry to Smith's room. Into which they entered, and in about five minutes tne light was extinguished. i The witnesi would further state that after the person had returned with the light into smith s room, and before it was extinguished, he had twice perceived some dark object to I intervene between the light and the window, F ,th? surfa?e of the window itself, and which he described by saying it I Mvf * door had been placed before the light. Now, in Smith's room, there was nothing which could account for this appear I ance, and there waa neither cupboard nor press in the room, which but for the bed, was I entirely empty, the room in which he dressed being a distance beyond it. The counsel for the prosecution here con- I eluded what he had to say. During his ad dress, Smith m n0 wiSi append to be agi. | tated or distressed, and equally unmoved w&f he while the witnesses testified iu substance what the opening speech of tho counsel led the court and the jury to expect. Lord Mansfield now addressed the jury. He said : that in his opinion the evidence was not sufficient to condemn the prisoner, and if the jury agreed with him in opinion, he would dis charge him. Without leaving their peats, the jury agreed that the evidence wss not suffi cient. At this moment, when they were about to render a verdict of acquittal, the prisoner roee and addressed the court. He said he had been accused of a foul crime, and the jury had said that there was not sufficient evidenoe against him* Was he to go out of court with suspi cions resting upon him, after all? This he was unwilling to do. He was an in nocent man, and if the judge would grant him the opportunity, be would prove it. He would call the housekeeper, who would confirm a statement "which he would now make. The housekeeper had not appeared in court, ^ho bad concealed herself, or had been by Smith. This wis considered a dark sign a-rairjt hm But he himself now offered to turns her forward, and stated as ihe reason, nut that h* wa* n^t willing that sue should testily, but knowing the exci,.eme;it, Lt was learful that she would be bribed to fcrve testi mony contrary to fact. But he was n ,w really to relata all me circumstances he kne-A she mignt be called and examined. If her testi mony does not confirm my story, let ms be condemned. The request of the prisoner ap] eared reason aole, and Lord Mansfield, contrary to his usual practice, granted it. The prisoner went on with his statement. He said he wished to go out of the court re lieved from the suspicions that were resting upon him. As to the poison by means of which the stranger was said to have died, he knew neither the Lame of it, nor the existence of it, until made known by counsel. He could call tfoi to witness the truth of what he s lid And then, as to Mr. Thompson, he wa? a perfect stranger to him. How should he know what articles of value he had ? He did not know. If he had such articles at Hull, ho might have left them on the road, or, which was m'.re probable, have otherwise disposed of them. And if he die by means of the fatal dru^, he must have administered it himself. lie begged the jury to remember that his premises had been repeatedly and minutely searched, aud not the most trifling article that belonged to the deceased had been discovered in his possession. The stopper ot a vial had been found, but of this he c-'uld only *ay, he had no knowledge, au.i bed i?ot seen it itvioie it wa4 proJuced in court. One fact hid been proved, and oalyonc. That he would explain, acd Li.- housekeeper would confirm the statement. A wuncca i testified that some one had gone to the beu room of the housekeeper on the night in ques tiou. He was ready to admit that it w is L* himself. He had been subject for much 01 hi? life to sudden fits of illness; he h id been seized with one on that occasion, and had ?one to procure her assistance in lighting a fire. She had returned with him to bis room for that purpose, he having waited foramiuut? in the pas<ag>?, while she put boi clothe* This would account for the momentary viic pearanceof the light. After remaining a lew minutes in bis room and finding himself bet ter, he had dismissed her, and retired to bad from which he had not risen when he was in formed of the death of the gnest. Such was the prisoner's ai<Jre*-\ which pro duced a powerful effect. It wa, delivered iu a very firm and impressive manner, and from the simple and artless manner of the man per haps not one present doubted his entire inno cence. The housekeeper was now introduced, and examined by the counsel for the prisoner. Slie had not heari any pail of the statement of Smith, not a single word of the trial. Her story confirmed all he had said. To this succeeded her cross-examination by the prosecution. One circumstance ha 1 made a deep impression on his mind?that was. that while the prisoner and the housekeeper were in the room of t'ue former, something like a door had obstructed the light of the ca'ndle. so that the witness testified to the fact, bu could uot see it. What was the obstruction ' There was no door?nothii g in the room whi^h could account for this. But the witness was positive that something lik* a door di J for a moment come between the win-low and tb~ candle. This needed explanation. The house keeper w:^ the ouiy person that could give it. Designing to probe tnis matter in the en I t the bottom but not wishing to excite her alarm he began by asking her a few unimportant questions, and amoug others, where tnc can dle stood while she was in Mr. Smith's room. 14 In the ceutre of the room," she replied. 44 Weil, was the closet or cupboard, or what ever you call it, opened once or twice, while it stood there ?" She male no reply. " I will help your recollection," said the counsel, ' ? alter Mr. Smith had taken the med icine out of tho closet, did he shut the door, or did it remain open ?" 44 flj shut it. ' 44 And when he replaced the bottle in the closet, be opened it again, did he f 44 He did." 44 And how long was it open the last time ?" 44 Not above a minute." 44 Well, and wheu open would thj d.*?r be exa t!y b tweeu the light and the window 44 It would." " I fjrget, : said the counsel, 44 whether you said the closet was on the right or the left hand side of the window ?" '?On the left hand side." V *Y"uld the door of the closet ma*e any1 noL>e in opening ?" ,4None." 44 Are you certain ?" 44 I am.'' '? Have you ever opened it yourself, or on'j eeen Mr. Smith open it ?" ?4 I never opened it myself." "Hid you ever keep the key ?" 44 Never." 44 Who did?" "Mr. Smith, always."' At this moment the housekeeper chanced lo cast her eyes towards Mr. Smith, the prisoner. A cold dump sweat stood upon bis brow, aud hi- tace had lost all its color; he appeared a living image of death. She no sooner saw him than she shrieked and fainted. The conse quence of her answer flashed across her mind. She had been so thoroughly deceived by the manner of the advocate, and the little impor tance he bad seemed to attach to her state ments, that the had been led ou, by one ques tion to another, till she had told him all fie wanted to know. Sea was obliged to be taken from the court, and a physician wn> was present wat- reques ted to attend her. At this tune the .solicitor for the prosecution (answering to our Slate's Attorney) left the Court, but no one knew for what purpose. Presently, the physician came into court, and stated that it would be impos sible for the house-keeper to resume her m .t in the box ?hort of an hour or two. lt was almost twelve in the day. Lor*i Mansfield, having directed that the jury be ac comodated with a room, where they could be kept by themselves, adjourned the court two hours. The prisoner, in the mean time was remanded to jail. It was between four and five o'clock, wbeo the judge resumed his seat upon the bench. The prisoner was again placed at the bar. and the housekeeper brought in and led to the box. The court room was crowded to ex-jeps, an'' 8D ^ful silence pervaded the pla??. The cross-examining counsel again addressed the housekeeper. ." J haw few more questions to ask you," said he, take heed hew you answer, fur your life h^ngs upon a thread.
